Very close to york

Having looked at other reviews, thought I would mention we didn’t have any electric issues. Coat £21 / night as we had a small porchnawning ...just 2 adults. 1 shower and 1 loo in same room. Charge for shower. Takes 20 p and £1. Credit does not carry forward.... Had to queue for loo/ shower one day . Other than that, nice site, easy to get to york, 2 miles into city. You can walk it or the park and ride isn’t just round the corner. York is lovely. Loads to see and do.

Close to York

Found the site easy enough access road is very uneven for the first 100yds. This site is as close as you can get to York city centre unless you stay at Rowntree, pitches are hard standing & level. We we're met by the owner as we arrived & informed which pitch to use, we were warned that the electric was only 10amp so I assume there has been trip outs of said hook-ups. Site is quiet enough but you can hear some road noise which can be expected as you're just off a main road into the city. You are a 5 minuet walk from York park & ride. The price of pitches are reasonable (just) for a site this close to the city, but I think the electrics need upgrading to 16amp for that price. There is a toilet & shower (charge) on site in the same room. Overall a great site if you whish to be close to the city.

Stayed a week, end of September

Great location for exploring York City Centre, and couldn’t be closer to local ‘amenities’ including Sainsbury’s, M&S and John Lewis, a variety of eateries, a cinema and the park and ride, all within walking distance. Although you can hear traffic in the distance, it’s surprisingly peaceful, and by no means intrusive. The single loo and shower (combined) were immaculately clean, but very tired and dated. The electric shower had no instructions and wasn’t particularly intuitive to use (or powerful). Electricity was on a timed coin meter, starts counting down as soon as fed, £1 gave 15 mins.

Weekend away - a lovely site.

This was our first time at the site and it was lovely, easy access to the site,Ride and park just round the corner that took us into york, On arrival with our Campervan our wheel bearing had gone, luckily we were only 5 minutes away from the site.It was saturday with us only getting to the site at 12pm, I spoke with Mrs Wardell and explained what had happened and that we might have to stay on till we could get hold of a wheel bearing, Mrs Wardell was excellent she said she was closing on the tuesday when everyone had left due to up grading the parking spaces. but we could stay on till we got sorted, after my frantic ringing numerous car shops we managed to get one, Mrs Wardells son came over to us to ask if he could help us, my husband said we have managed to get hold of one in malton, but we've no car, Mr Cardwell was more than happy to help us, he took us to pay for the part, then he offered to go and pick it up for us on the monday evening, my husband luckily had the tools to fit the wheel bearing, on tuesday morning all was sorted and wheel bearing was fitted, We couldnt thank Mrs Wardell and her son enough for there help, but for them helping we would of been stuck. Excellent site good service, lovely people. will deffinatley stay again in the future. Thanks for your help and support. Regards Mr And Mrs Hill.

Weekend away

Hi We have just stayed for 2 nights during winter months. The hard standing was not wide enough at all. I was walking in deep mud to change my water barrels which ruined more than one pair of shoes, this was not good enough at all. Please extend the width by at least 1.5 metres. If you accept winter trade you need to cater for winter trade. The price shows £19 for all occupants, but was charged £43 for 2 nights, I need to find out why. Only 10amp electricity was available which could be better for the fees charged They could do with spending a few pounds on up dating the site and entrance. You are charging the same price as top quality sites.
